Truly Malaysian Food .......

extract from NST Page 16 with my own comments ........

the following have been identify as truly malaysian food

Nasi Tumpang - from Kelantan, origins as a pack lunch for farmers Rice, Tempe, omelette's and sambal - with currents versions containing meat floss, chicken, fish and curry.

Nasi Kerabu - from Kelantan, unique blue rice, with a salad of vegetable and edible leafs, such as daun kasum, Vietnamese mint, bean sprout, long beans, cucumber and betal leaf.

Nasi kunyit - or turmeric rice, a "sacred dish" usually serve with chicken or beef curry at weddings .... Some Chinse serve this dish with chicken curry, red eggs, ang koo cake to celebrate the birth of a child.

Ketupat - found in satay stalls, rice or glutinous rice wrapped in a pouche of palm leaves .... also know as nasi himpit ... current version made using plastic bag .....

Lemang - glutinous rice cook in coconut milk in hollowed bamboo trunks ........ usually eaten with chicken or beef rendang

Rendang - usually beef cook with cpcpmnit milk, ginger, galangal, turmeric leaf, lemon grass and chilly ......

My comment, All of the food mention is rice base, with the exception of rendang which is eaten with one of the above. and No East Malaysian Food ? I think more research needed.
